* Even native speakers often use the words farther and further interchangeably, but most of
the time, they shouldn’t. Both are adverbs, although further can occasionally be used as a verb.
* Farther refers to a literal distance, which means something that cam probably be measured.
* Further refers to a figurative, or a metaphorical distance, or it can simply mean moreover.
* It’s easy; just remember that if you are talking about distance, use the word farther, which
includes the word far.
* If someone tries to tell you that the two words are almost impossible to tell the difference,
you should tell them that nothing could be further from the truth!
Research has proved that fake news travels both faster and than real news does. As a matter of fact, it takes the truth about six times as long as a falsehood to reach the same amount of people.
Nowadays, when something surprising and unpleasant happens, it is usual for rumors to fly by way of social media that aggravates the situation.
Statistics prove that Twitter falsehoods were 70% more likely to be re-tweeted than the truth, and researchers concluded that fake news contains more uniqueness than real news, and this pushes people to use fake news as a medium to promote themselves.
If a person is an attention-grabber, they can go than any truth seeker because they don’t constrain themselves to truth or reality.
But it goes than simply calling attention to oneself – people who post fake news like to evoke emotions in others, and there is no limit to what emotions a made-up story can evoke.
People need to be educated about sending or resending fake news and the consequences that this can cause.
One of the consequences if that, down the road, fake news will be creating societies of disbelieving, suspicious and unhappy citizens.
I should have named this “Social Media, the Modern Way to Our Popularity and Self-esteem”.
Tattoos have been around for more than 5,000 years. Egyptians, for example, used tattoos to differentiate between peasants and slaves, a kind of social branding. But ink art, which is what some fans like to call tattooing, has really exploded in the past 25 years. But not all of us have succumbed to this fad. And many of us who don’t have a tattoo have a favorite mug. Having a tattoo or becoming attached to a mug are not dissimilar. According to research, 60% of Americans say they have an emotional attachment to a favorite mug. And about 40% said their special mug was irreplaceable, and about 1/3 of those said they would be devastated if it broke. Personally, I think that most of these people don’t have tattoos. Mugs and tattoos are both an extension of our personalities, and both express the way we would like the world to perceive us. That is not to mention, of course, that those of us who have tattoos or mugs are often irrationally attached to them.
